Essential Oil Mishaps & Solutions

Mishaps 1

This blog topic came up in a Facebook thread. One of our team members posted about a mishap with her oils. I knew that many of us avid oilers have had mishaps with our essential oils. Most were accident, lack of education, just learning how to use essential oils….and some were just down right comical.

I decided to reach out to my team to learn what some of them have encountered while using essential oils. The comments begin to pile up, and I have to go through them the next morning. I realized that we have all been here. The purpose of this blog is to make you giggle a little bit, learn some of the tidbits of oils gone wrong. Most importantly, I want to share with you some solutions to these OILER problems.

First of all I always want to teach the safety guidelines of using essential oils. Click the link to read the guidelines. Another piece of education I offer on this site is our Beginners Guide. This guide goes over many of the basic use of essential oils. I have found the easiest way to get these guidelines to others is on the website. People can watch and learn at own pace, come back later if they have questions.

So…. What kind of mishaps have happened to our OILY crew??

“Putting too many oils in the diffuser”

Solution: You can either dump it out and start over…or I have in the past taken half the water out and put in a mason jar… add new water to the left over water in the diffuser….use the mason jar at a later date diluted or add to a different diffuser that day.

“Too much Lemon oil in my water”

Solution: Less is more. You can do the same principle above, putting half your potent lemon water in another waterbottle…. or dump. Remember ONE drop is all you probably need. The oils are concentrated… One drop of peppermint is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea.

“I didn’t wash my hands, and rubbed my eyes”

Solution: Grab a carrier oil. Most people use coconut oil, you can put a little coconut oil on a q tip and place next to the eye, hold in place. The essential oils draw to the coconut oil, and let the eye flush. This advice is of course is for small incidents, larger accidents can be dangerous….and likely avoided by hand washing after dispensing. Make sure to wash you hands after application.

“I decided to use essential oil hand sanitizer for deodorant. OUCH.”

Solution: Don’t use hand santizer for deodorant 🙂 , All jokes aside, when oils trigger a response from the skin… DILUTION IS HUGE. As mentioned in our beginners guide and essential oil safety guidelines, dilution is needed for safe application of essential oils. Now perhaps, the sanitizer diluted may of worked without the burn. Add more carrier when in doubt.

“I used too many drops and my skin was on fire”

Solution: More Carrier oil. Keep putting the oil on the area that is hot. Eventually it will calm down…but for now keep adding the carrier oil. DO NOT USE WATER. It will make it worse. Your best bet is to keep using carrier oil to cool the skin and dilute the oils.

Being a new essential oil user can be intimidating at first. Just remember that less is more…and I hope some of these tips help you in a time of “oops”.

So do you have an essential oil mishap? Message me. I would love to add to this blog.

Thank you team OILsome for sharing your stories with me. Xoxo

Dear Limits…I am now an author!

Last year I was approached to co author in a book with other female entrepreneurs.  At first….I giggled…thinking it was spam. Little did I know that this journey would be a process of hard work, brainstorming and digging deep. 

The idea behind the book is the limits we set on ourselves.. and how it impacts our success level in every aspect of life. Time to relearn how you perceive limitations. See the changes thought the eyes of a tribe of successful, driven women. 

My chapter is Adversity & Your Empire. I had to dig deep into my heart and memories in order to create the list of things to write about.  I finally was able to narrow it down to a list of things an entrepreneur really needs to know. 

The list included:

-success is not easy 

-mindset control & the hater complex

-how to improve your worth as an entrepreneur

This amazing book has been on the best seller list and I think is a must have for the women entrepreneur.
